Just a girl

Yes, I’m a girl
Dead but still alive
Because it’s easy to shrink my skin off,
Knowing I’m someone’s wife.
Yes, I’m a girl
Euphoric and naive
It’s easy for men to get laid on me and escape
Like a wind to it’s wave
Yes, I’m a girl
Where everything feels right
Convincing my own lies
To escape from the inner fight.
Yes, I’m a girl
Ruminating about past
Knowing it’s not permanent
Still want things to last.
Yes, I’m a girl
Broken but working
Walking down a grocery shop
Just to see a men lurking?
So, why put us down
When we can rise like a phoenix
We are humans walking down town
Not someone’s broken toy to be fixed!
